Portland Rental Car Deals

In the Portland, Oregon area, a change of scenery is never more than a short rental-car drive away, making renting a car in Portland well worth the expense. To the north is Mount St. Helens, which in 1982 covered Portland in volcanic ash. To the east is Mount Hood, visible from Portland on clear days. Only a couple hours' drive away is the Columbia Gorge but point your rental car in the opposite direction, and in about the same amount of time, you'll be at the rugged Oregon coast. Whether you choose to pick up your rental car at the airport or from one of the many car rental companies in town, you will find some useful information below to help you get the right rental car for the right price.

Location, location, location

If you're arriving in Portland by plane, you may wish to pick up your rental car from one of the many car rental companies at the airport. Avis,Budget, Dollar, and Hertz have registration counters in Portland International Airport (PDX). Alamo, Thrifty, and National pick-up counters are just a shuttle ride away. Expedia can also show you a map of the nearest car rental locations to your hotel and the rental cars they carry. (And keep in mind that off-airport car rentals are often cheaper than at the airport, even from the same car rental company.)

Picking the rental car that's right for you

Expedia offers a choice of standard rental cars, luxury autos, vans and SUVs to meet nearly every need. If you need any special equipment, like a ski rack, let us know and we will forward your request on to the rental car company. And what's more, when you choose to "hire a car" (as the British say) from one of our car rental partners* in Portland, you'll be dealing with a rental car company that has made a special commitment to provide Expedia customers with great customer service, a wide choice of top quality cars, and competitive total pricing.

Expedia's Total Pricing

Unlike some other online travel sites that show you a cheap discount rate for your car rental when you're shopping and then heap on taxes and fees when it comes time to pay, Expedia shows you the final price up front. What you see is what you pay.
